A.D. The Bible Continues — season one, episode six

ad-saul-gamaliel-2

Season 1, Episode 6 — ‘The Persecution’
Acts 8:1-3

Editing Acts, redux. The first five episodes of A.D. The Bible Continues zipped through the gospels and the book of Acts at a brisk pace, covering multiple chapters at a time. But the sixth episode slows things down in a big way and covers just three verses in Acts: it begins with the burial of Stephen (8:2) and then goes on to show how Saul persecuted the church (8:3) and scattered the followers of Jesus (8:1).

Saul turns against the followers of Jesus, while Annas and his son Jonathan turn against Caiaphas, and you can catch a glimpse of it all in four new clips below the jump.

A.D. The Bible Continues — season one, episode four

Season 1, Episode 4 — ‘The Wrath’
Acts 4-5

Editing Acts, redux. The first three episodes of A.D. The Bible Continues rushed through the scriptures and skipped over major parts of the story, but this episode actually slows down long enough to let the book of Acts breathe a little.
